JOINT STATEMENT FROM ICE CUBE AND JEFF KWATINETZ, CO-FOUNDERS OF BIG3, IN RESPONSE TO OLYMPICS ADDING 3-ON-3 BASKETBALL TO TOKYO 2020

“We would like to commend the Olympics for making 3-on-3 basketball, the most played sport in the world, an official Olympic sport starting at Tokyo 2020. We have worked tirelessly for the last two years to get the most loved game in the world played by some of the most skilled, brilliant players in the world broadcast on a professionally recognized stage. This announcement by the International Olympic Committee comes at a perfect time, with the BIG3 10-game season tipping off in less than three weeks on June 25 Barclays Center in Brooklyn. This decision reconfirms our gut instinct that 3-on-3 basketball is what sports and entertainment fans want to see. We are grateful to FOX Sports and FS1 for believing in this idea early and that fans who are unable to attend the games will be able to watch from home and online.”
